Ubisoft might have put hints at future settings in Assassin's Creed Unity.

A screenshot from Unity was posted to Reddit showing an interface displaying all of the game's Helix Missions, which include: Hell in Hibernia, Jazz Age Junkies, and The Emperor's Shadow.

These quests take place in different time periods. For instance, Jazz Age Junkies takes place in early twentieth century America.

There are, however, references to settings that have already been done in Assassin's Creed: Edward Kenway, Ezio Auditore, Aveline, and Connor are all given Helix Missions.

Ubisoft has hinted at settings of future games in past installments of its popular franchise: The company confirmed that Freedom Cry, the DLC to Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag, hinted at the setting of what would become Unity.

In addition, Black Flag had a mission in its present day story that showed various locations that the franchise might explore in the future.

They were included in an e-mail chain that you--an anonymous employee of Abstergo Entertainment--read on the president of the company's computer.

The Helix Missions might hint at future settings. But 2015's Assassin's Creed title will be set in Victorian London.

Titled Assassin's Creed Victory, the setting was leaked earlier this month.

There may be another AC title for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 in 2015--as there was in 2014 with Assassin's Creed Rogue--but this is speculation, as Ubisoft hasn't announced anything relating to this.
